André 3000 to Work on Aretha Franklin’s New Covers Album

aretha-2012-328.328

Legendary singer and all around powerhouse Aretha Franklin has been working on a new covers album for quite some time now. The record revolves around divas and their songs and will come out sometime this September. She has already covered hits by Gladys Knight, Barbra Streisand, Donna Summer, and Tina Turner, and is now moving on to Adele’s howler “Rolling In The Deep” with a little help from André 3000.

Apparently Don Was was supposed to help with the album but recently backed out. There to step up to the task was André 3000, and Aretha is, as most anyone would be, excited to start working with him. “I’m pretty sure it’s going to be fun working with [André 3000], just watching his videos and things,” Franklin said in an interview. “It should be fun. And, of course, they all come with great music, so I expect that.”

We’re excited to see how the full-length turns out, so stay tuned to UTG Review to hear more.
